loophole train wreck. >>> and jan schakowsky on romney's preexisting problems with obama care. >>> and the national media is portraying chicago's striking teachers as overpaid and greedy. >> chicago teachers are the best paid of any school district in the country. >> the average chicago teacher makes about $76,000 a year. >> nearly four times higher than what the average american receives. >> we'll tell you what the chicago teacher strike is all about. >> good to have you with us. thanks for watching. the romney campaign says that the 2012 election will follow a similar pattern to the election of 1980. they compare mitt romney to the republican challenger ronald reagan who came from behind in the polls to defeat a democratic president. now the romney team was banking on a bounce like ronald reagan got after the republican national convention. the chairman predicted a significant post convention bounce for the candidate. >> i think we're going to get a bump. we have a better opportunity for a bump as a challenging party so when people get to know mitt romney and get to know who

did that effectively. >> well, kim, i heard that on medicare, that was a real attack on the obama care and medicare, but i didn't hear any defense by ryan from the tax plan, for example, no case for tax reform, he didn't make a pro growth case, economic case, as much as i know he believes in person. >> yeah, and that's the real issue that they're going to have to address this fall. so far it's been a lot of doom and gloom saying we're on the wrong path and we've got to fix things and start pivoting and talking about the real way out of this hole is getting an economy that grows again and brings in the tax revenue to help with the spending issues. >> jason, what else struck you about the weak? >> first of all, ryan gave the speech at a convention, in my view hit it out of the park, anyone who didn't know he was a serious person, knows nowment i don't think he's going to fade in the spotlight like sarah palin did four years ago. i think that chris christie also gave, the new jersey governor gave a very powerful speech. >> and not everybody agrees with you on that one. in fact, most peopl

years calling it obama care, socialism and everything else, government takeover, where are the conservatives? all of a sudden they are quiet. >> they may be squawking more in the days to come. susan said ryan was a bad pick, but for a bunch of reasons. one of them is that he wasn't chosen to stand for anything. when i was wrong, i was like we're going to have a real debate about two different directions for the country. paul ryan's budget, he believes these things. president obama believes different things. mitt romney is putting meat on the bones and we're going to have a real debate. >> i thought the same thing by the way. >> whether you liked it or not, it seemed like a strategy. but then to pick paul ryan and muzzle him, i thought ryan was more damaging to the ticket than romney was on the sunday shows because if you don't let him talk about what he believes, he was like sarah palin. gasping for air. he didn't have an answer if he's told to not to talk about what he believes. >> people expect him to be bland and talk about the numbers and the facts and here's what y

the first first debate between mitt romney and president obama. health care is a key issue, one of the biggest, in fact, and it's back in the spotlight this week after romney said people without insurance can always just go to an emergency room. now, with barely a month to go before the election, i wanted to zero in on what's at stake here. since president obama's health care law was enacted, 3.1 million people under the age of 26 are now covered by their parents' plans, and preventive care is covered 100% by insurance companies. seniors in particular have benefitted on prescription drugs. >> seniors who fall in the coverage gap known as the doughnut hole will start getting some help. they'll receive $250 to help pay for prescriptions, and that will over time fill in the doughnut hole. >> 5.5 million seniors have saved a total of $4.5 billion on prescription drugs since it was enacted. hi also plans to slow spending on medicare. >> i've strengthened medicare. we've added years to life of medicare. we did it by getting rid of taxpayer subsidies that weren't making pea hemmier. >>

a reality check on two big issues. first the big promise of obama care under the microscope. as you know, certainly if you've been watching this program nearly 50 million americans don't have health insurance. now obama care is supposed to eventually change that but many of those it's supposed to help now don't know the details. for example, people who can't get insurance because they have what's known as a preexisting condition. and that brings me to the story of leslie elder, a woman with cancer who i met three years ago. >> i always said, i don't get a ca cold. i get cancer. >> cancer seemed to follow leslie elder. she was diagnosed with breast cancer for the first time in 1988. did you worry about paying for the medical care? >> no. at that time i had a good coverage. >> reporter: 13 years later she was struck with breast cancer again. >> as i'm recuperating, i receive $21,000 of bills that i was responsible for. >> reporter: since elder's first bout with cancer, health care costs skyrocketed. eventually it got so expensive the elders took their chances and dropped their coverage all

in florida and i know firsthand that obama care works. the doe knothole his a scary thing because after you spend the the first $2,000 in medications, you suddenly fall off a cliff into this whole and drugs that you were paying a small amount for suddenly your having to pay full price. that is kind of scary at first until i realized that obama care allows you to get your name brand drugs at half-price. i will save approximately $1,500 this year thanks to obama care. i would say that my life depends on these medications. without the savings, i would have to make a decision on whether or not to take those medications at all. the affordable care act is the most important legislation that has come before the american people as far as health care is concerned that they are going to close the doughnut hole in the next few years. and then it is going to be even better. we all need this plan. all of us need health care. we are all in this together. >> please welcome carol berman of west palm beach florida. >> i am so proud to be at the democratic national convention from florida. i am one of the se

. karen finney. you heard about reclaiming obama care, it's a term republicans use to criticize the signature health care law. following the lead of president obama on the campaign trail, democrats wrapped their arms around obama care at last night's convention. >> republicans may see romney care as a scar let letter, but for us democrats, obama care is a badge of honor. being a woman is no longer a preexisting condition. >> obama care provides my family security and relief. >> we cannot trust mitt romney to protect our health. he would repeal obama care. >> i'm joined by msnbc's lawrence o'donnell, host of "the last word." i want to ask you about embracing obama care as a strategy. great for the crowd in the hall, no doubt about it. do you think it helps to appeal to undecided voters out there in tv land? >> well, the more you think about it, the more you realize they don't have a choice. that's what the republicans are going to call it and throw it at the democrats and at the president as if it's an accusation. and they have no choice other than to pick that word up and run wi

to see obama care still losing. we don't know if we can get rid of that. like the republicans have given up. there's no fight in them. we want them to cowboy up and bring the fight to the other big spenders on the other side. >> you think they have dropped the ball on that one and when it comes to sequestration they have automatic cuts they agreed to if they couldn't get to a budget agreement last year they are trying to back away from that. do you think, look, as draconian as they might be they would stick to that if they abandon it it would abad thing? >> i think it is a bad thing if they let those cuts expire. we are in the middle of a deep, deep recession if not a depression. there are 23 million people without jobs and a lot of those have given up trying to look for work. now is not the time to increase taxes on the dwindling producers in our country when we have a president that is trying to give more money away to the moochers and welfare. we need people working not sitting back receiving food stamps and unemployment. it is laughable. republicans couldndon't accept . i am going to
